Free Russ Now

You don't need to know law to read through the records of the trial of the case of William (Russ) Davies ( In the Seventh Judicial Circuit Court, Volusia Court Florida + State of Florida v. William Russell Davies + Case Number 86- ) and know that something is terribly wrong. To date, countless attorneys have read through these document and so far, every single one of them are outraged. Sadly, the mechanics of law prevents reopening cases unless there are very rare and very specific circumstances.
Recently, one of those 'very rare and very specific circumstances' occurred. A witness, previously unknown, has sworn under oath that they have testimony evidence that would contradict the testimony of a jailer that testified for the State in Russ' case. The argument is that IF the jury heard this testimony, there is a really good chance that the verdict would be different.
On 10/15/2020 a 'pro se ' motion for 'newly discovered evidence' was filed in the Volusia County Court. Pro se means 'I'm a pauper and I have no attorney'. Here in Florida this type of motion is dumped on a pile of thousands of other 'inmate actions' and if they receive any kind of regard, its usually contempt.
To date there is two firms that have expressed interest in adopting this motion, but due to covid, they haven't the financial padding to accept a new case 'pro bono'. Sadly the quality of legal representation you have is relative to the amount of money you spend. Even more sad is the fact that currently, we can't even afford the cheapest.
This case is over 34 years old. An obvious and brazen miscarriage of justice, that the 'mechanics of law' bar anyone from challenging. This is a very rare and unique window that has provided a very thin and limited opportunity to correct, but help is needed.
What ever support you are able to provide will hugely impact the outcome of this proceeding. Whatever your able to do is appreciated beyond the ability of words to convey.
Thank-you!!
